Predictable air supply in unpredictable environment

May 9, 2016

Antwerp, Belgium, May 9, 2016: Even in the most severe weather conditions, Atlas Copco can provide reliable air supply. This is certainly true when Atlas Copco Rental provides temporary compressed air to exploit iron ore mine in Kiruna, Sweden’s northernmost town.

Severe weather conditions for both men and machines

Located 150 km north of the polar circle, Kiruna lives under a challenging environment of year-round snow and temperatures below -15°C for most of the year making it not such a hospitable place for both the men and the machines.

Yet it is home to one of the largest and richest bodies of iron ore in the world.

Exclusively Atlas Copco air for large iron mine

The mine, which is operated by state-owned mining company LKAB, is exploited 365 days a year, on a 24/7 basis.

No need to say that such a schedule requires for a lot of compressed air.

Recently LKAB made an agreement with Itsab, a long-time partner of Atlas Copco. To guarantee compressed air of the best quality, LKAB is going to switch their entire compressed air installation to Atlas Copco.

Atlas Copco and Itsab: a successful relationship in a challenging climate

To make this switch, LKAB both purchases and rents Atlas Copco compressors.

The quality of the Atlas Copco products combined with the knowledge of Itsab guarantees LKAB a predictable compressed air supply in an unpredictable environment.
